Mexi-Chicken with Guacamole

I'll be honest.

  I really have no idea what to call this (besides DELICIOUS) 

 Guacamole? Check 
Cheese? Check
 Salsa? Check 
Chicken? Check

 Why WOULDN'T you make this? 

(makes 3)

 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts 
 2 tablespoon minced garlic 
2 tablespoons olive oil 
1/4 tsp salt and pepper 

 For garnish
 1/2 C shredded cheese (I used Trader Joe's Lite 3 cheese blend) 
1/4 C of your favorite salsa

1 avocado 
10 grape tomatoes, chopped 
2 tablespoons garlic, minced 
1/4 red onion, minced 
 1/2 a small lime zested 
Juice from half a lime 
 Salt  (to taste) 

In a skillet ( I used a cast iron skillet) heat the olive oil and add chicken (make sure it's defrosted and dry!) Heat until cooked through (about 8minutes per side) 

 While chicken is heating prepare guacamole.
In a medium size bowl (I used a cereal bowl!) mash avocado with lime zest and garlic, with a fork.  Then add onion and tomato and mix to combine.  Top with fresh squeezed lime juice and salt 

   After chicken is finished cooking plate and top with cheese, salsa and guacamole.
